Spirit of Arbor Day Tree Sale began March 11

This is a news release from the City of Longmont and is published by the Longmont Observer as a public service. 


In honor of Colorado Arbor Day, the City of Longmont’s Forestry Services is coordinating a community tree sale.

With the discovery of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Longmont in 2016, planting new trees is more important than ever.

From March 16 – April 10, residents will be able to view options and reserve their trees online or by calling 303-651-8416.

A variety of trees will be available at below wholesale cost of $80 each. The 2020 Tree Sale will be offered by pre-reserve purchase only. The sale is limited to Longmont residents, with a two tree limit per person.

Pick-up of reserved trees will occur at the City’s Sunset Campus on Saturday, April 18 (there will be no onsite sales). Forestry staff will be on hand to answer questions about planting, pruning, pests and more.
